In the past few years, Nintendo has celebrated a number of landmark anniversaries for some of their most popular franchises, and this year is no different. 2022 marks Kirby’s 30th anniversary, and Nintendo is promising some exciting things for the pink blob.
The official Twitter account for Kirby tweeted out an announcement about the franchise’s anniversary, and the account has posted two special Kirby 30th anniversary wallpapers.

Nintendo has revealed that they have “a variety of Kirby 30 activities coming soon” as part of the celebration for the Kirby milestone. Sadly, there are no specific details about what these activities are and if Nintendo has any other Kirby announcements planned for this year.
One thing we can bank on this year, though, is a brand new Kirby game. Kirby’s new entry in the series, Kirby and the Forgotten Land will be releasing on March 25. This new Kirby game has generated a lot of buzz, and it’s the first time we’ve seen Kirby in a 3D platformer!
Here’s Nintendo’s new trailer for the game.
